Russo family from Messina, Sicily

Post by russo1 » 08 Aug 2010, 20:16

Searching for information on Sebastiano Russo. He was born December 10, 1856, in Messina. I think his parents may have been Michelangelo and Giuseppa Russo. He married Thomasine Scuto and had two children; Giuseppa born September 21, 1881 and Michelangelo born April 23, 1883.
Giuseppa married Carlo Spinola in Messina, and lived on Vico Torrente Portaglena in Messina. Carlo and Giuseppa later came to the United States. Michelangelo left for the US in December 1905 and married Pasqualina Rao. Pasqualina was from Ali, Sicily.
Sebastiano remarried Maria, don't know her maiden name. Maria was born March 18, 1871. They had three children; Letteria Russo, born February 14, 1902; Giovanni Russo, born March 2, 1903; and Santo, born September 15, 1906. Those three children all remained in Messina.
Sebastiano left for the USA after the birth of Santo, and stayed until after 1922. He was granted US citizenship. He returned to Messina and was reported to have died in World War 2 period.
If anyone can help with this, it would be a huge help.
